Northeast Tennessee

First Time for Everything

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City The Range (Science Hill)

The gloom was thick at The Range on a foggy 52 degree morning. 11 PAX were eager to close the week of right….or wrong depending on how you look at things.
TTT – 10 IC

Imperial Walker – 15 IC

Slow Squat – 10 IC

LBAC – 10 IC then reverse 10 IC

Merkin – 10 IC

Grab your coupon and mosey to the skate park
YHC hasn’t posted at The Range or The Hill since the suspension so some work on one of the most coveted hills was in order. The hill next to the skate park and baseball fields is deceptively grinding so why not add some coupons to the mix? 2 rounds traversing the hill during the round then run back to the skate park for some core work. Rinse and repeat until time is called. Core work in the skate park was the same throughout – 20 mountain climbers (R+L=1) and 20 flutter kicks (R+L=1).

  • Round 1
    • Bottom of the hill – 5 merkins and 5 squats
    • Mid-point of the hill – 10 merkins and 10 squats
    • Top of the hill – 15 merkins and 15 squats
  • Round 2 (carry the coupons up the hill as you go and back down)
    • Bottom of the hill – 5 squat thrusters and 5 curls
    • Mid-point of the hill – 10 squat thrusters and 10 curls
    • Top of the hill – 15 squat thrusters and 15 curls

Strong work from all the PAX covering roughly 2.25 miles over the course of 2-3 sets of both rounds. This one looked much better on paper. The squat thrusters working your way up the hill was a smoker. Moneypenny shared that no one had ever carried the coupons up the hill during a Q but there’s a first time for everything!



The governor of TN lifted the 10 person limit so we will not have to split up going forward. Please continue to socially distance throughout the Q and COT, no sharing of coupons, and please stay at home if you aren’t feeling well.

We still have a few Murph slots left for Monday’s annual F3 NETN tradition.

Launchpad has setup a food drive opportunity for the region. Please consider bringing some food items to support Good Samaritan. See Slack for additional details.

Get on the Q at the AO near you. Plenty of open slots with some AO Qs who like to bring the pain when they are forced on the Q.
